When wandering around Mostar on our second day we felt in need of a drink and a little rest.
The oudoor terrace of the Konoba Dvije Pecine (Restaurant Two Caves) looked inviting to us, as it offers nice views of the the Crooked Bridge (Kriva Cuprij) and the Radoblja river.
We directly ordered two natural lemonades (Prirodni Limunada), which is a popular refreshing local drink in Bosnia and Herzegovina.
When we wanted to pay, the waiter came and charged us 10 KM for the two lemonades.
He didn't present us any bill and disappeared quite quickly with our money. The same drink ususally costs in other locations in Mostar something between 2,50 and 3,00 KM.
For me it looks like the Konoba Dvije Pecine is either a bloody expensive place or our waiter just took the chance to rip us off. I must admit that we didn't complain as it is still a reasonable price for Western standards, but nevertheless it was just noticable to us that we neither got to see any menu nor a proper bill.

The city of Blagaj with the source of the Buna river is situated about 10 km southeast of Mostar. It seems to be very popular for eating out, as many large restaurants can be found here.
We chose Restaurant Vrelo for our dinner, due to its excellent location on the river bank. Numerous tables are located outside on types of artificial concrete islands enabling everybody to dine just by the water.
They serve a large variety of international as well as local Bosnian meals. Fish dishes, especially trout from the Buna river, are among the specialities.
I ordered a beefsteak (Biftek) with egg, french fries and vegetables, which was good. To drink I had a local beer: Sarajevsko pivo.
The beefsteak cost 16 KM and the beer was with only 2,50 KM surprisingly cheap. Our waiter was attentive and helpful. Payment was possible in both Convertible Mark (KM) and Euro. The latter was even calculated at a very fair rate.

After our arrival in Mostar in the late morning we were quite hungry. As we had already eaten many Bosnian dishes in Sarajevo, we felt it was about time for a pizza.
On the way from our hostel to the old town we passed through the pedestrianised Brace Feija Street which seems to be one of the main shopping streets in Mostar. There we spotted the Pizzeria ABC which looked inviting to us.
The restaurant is located on the upper floor of the building and has a small outdoor terrace at street level. Although it was hot outside we took a seat inside at the window from where we had an excellent view of the street.
The restaurant is air conditioned and nicely decorated. The menu offers a wide range of pizzas as well as other Italian dishes.
I opted for a Pizza Mozarella and a natural lemonade. Everything was very tasty and with 8 KM for the pizza and 2,5 KM for the lemonade reasonably priced.
Due to its location slightly outside of the touristy old town, the Pizzeria ABC seemed to be frequented by quite a few locals.

Ascinica Misal is a small local restaurant for a quick meal. It has both tables inside and outside on the pedestrianised street.
We had dinner here on our first evening in Mostar. The menu concentrates on a selection of typcial Bosnian meals.
As we already had a filling meal that day at lunchtime, I only ordered a small portion of Cevapcici (Mala Porcija Cevapi) for dinner.
The Cevapcici came with chopped onions in a flatbread (somun) and were very yummy. The small portion cost 3 KM.
The waiter was very friendly and helpful. Ascinica Misal seems to be a good option, if you are looking for a quick local meal, which is not overpriced.

Carnivores eat well in Mostar, meat is central to every meal. Vegetarians may well get tired of spinach and cheese, the most usual combination for meatless dishes. The influence is strongly Turkish, with menus featuring lots of stuffed vegetable dishes and filo-wrapped fillings. Local lamb, terrific tomatoes, crispy cucumbers, salty farmhouse cheeses, yummy yoghurt - everything tastes so fresh with good gutsy flavours and generous serves. It may not be fine dining but it is wonderfully satisying and combined with a setting either overlooking the river or in a shady courtyard, its very conducive to lingering with a cold beer on a hot afternoon or another glass of wine on a balmy evening.
We've eaten lunch at Sadrvan (on the road leading to up to the bridge, on the west bank) both times we've been to Mostar, enjoying both the food and the relaxed garden atmosphere. Babilon, set on terraces overlooking the bridge (again on the west side) is rather more upmarket - and correspondingly expensive - is lovely in the evening as the sun sets and the lights come up.

I first found this little café through Omer, the man that I stayed with. It’s just a café with a few tables, barely large enough for ten people, but the food is regional and very inexpensive. I think our entire meal was about $6 and we ordered everything that we wanted. It’s good for a quick lunch or for a light supper. I ordered cevipici (I think that’s how you spell it) and my mom got a soup and salad.

This place was great. First of all, it's easy to find next to the Aslant Bridge (the mini Stone Bridge) in the Old Town. It's a tiny little stone house that is kept warm by a raging wood fireplace. The wooden furnishings add to the warmth of the room.
Favorite Dish: I ordered a river fish that I think was trout. It turned out to be two whole fish, grilled with olive oil and some light herbs and served over potato wedges and with some fresh tomatoes. It was absolutely delicious and very simple. The bread that was served was a much higher quality loaf than I was used to getting at most places in the region. I also had a good house red wine.

Here's a shot of the outside of the restaurant. The word Konoba, I gathered, means something like "an old-time, local restaurant" and that description certainly fits this place. If you are visiting the famous Stari Most (Old Bridge) which will reopen in the summer of 2004, you'll find this restaurant just behind it at one end of the smaller, Aslant Bridge (Kriva Cuprija).

With Mostar's historic roots linked to both Turkey and Austria, it's no surprise that you'll have no trouble finding coffeehouses around town. I stopped at one just across from the post office (Posta) called Caffe Grande and also at another on the cobblestone street that runs parallel to the eastern side of the Neretva River near the Old Bridge (and just across from a tourist agency). The coffee was good and quite cheap.

As it was already late, once we got our room at Pansion rose, we headed to the old city for dinner and the easiest was to go back to motel Kriva Cuprija for its restaurant.
We found again our Spanish speaking friend and … we were the only one in the dining room and he was the only one to cook and to serve.
Favorite Dish: The food was not outstanding but fair.
The muscalica was fair but I had eaten more tasty ones in other places.
Grilled lamb was fair too. Sure that cooking cannot be outstanding when there are only two customers in a restaurant!
May be the food is better when there are more customers and a true cook in the kitchen!
